Given how many big names have fallen over the last few weeks due to sexual misconduct, abuse and harassment, you'd think I'd name 2017 as the year of power abuse. However, while I know a lot of folks think the issue is dying down, I don't see that at all. There are entire industries that have yet to be hit by this, and Congress hasn't even finished cleaning house or putting in place rules to prevent this activity. Last week I pointed out how Google was abusing its power in holding Amazon Echo Show customers hostage to force Amazon to sell products it didn't want to sell.

Congress needs rules to prevent this? Are you kidding? Who doesn't know that sexual harassment is wrong?

This is one of the reasons behind my own concerns regarding the corporate trend towards subscription services. In many cases any DRM content obtained through a service like that doesn't belong to you regardless of it being a separate purchase.

Read the Terms of Service Agreements!

It sounds like you had a security issue where your account was in danger of running up unapproved charges. With that, you should be thankful that they stopped your services to prevent further damage while it was investigated and fixed. But another good news customer service story about amazon would not make a sensational guesswork story like you have created and your job would be pointless.

What best describes your attitude toward social networks and politics?
The value of engaging in serious political discourse outweighs the negatives.
Most of the political conversations seem overheated and ignorant.
Social networks provide a lot of very good political information from reliable sources.
Almost every political post I see is skewed or totally fake.
Political interactions on social networks simply mirror those in the real world.
Social networks remove inhibitions, bringing out the worst in people and politics.
